Worthy of using as a devotional book. Worthy of a textbook for a woman's Bible study. Worthy of a reminder to us as to the value of women in the Kingdom of God. Worthy of encouraging everyone to make good use of the gifts they have received in the Kingdom of God. Worthy of recalling the power of God unleashed when people give themselves over to him.
Ace Collins has chosen 19 outstanding women to illustrate his points. It is a refreshing set of vignettes from modern church history in regard to the work of women. Some of these women gave from godly homes filled with prayer and devotion to God. They then lived out their lives at a higher level than they had experienced at home. Others abandoned position and fortune to accomplish what they recognized as a God-given call to ministry. Many like Catherine Booth recognized a serious social need and stepped outside the box to meet that need. One of these women is the founder of the Girl Scouts. Two giants of the faith included by Collins are Catherine Booth and Mother Teresa.
Collins challenges us to think of the value of women in the church in all of history. Many who read this review will relate to mothers, grandmothers, wives, and other godly women who helped mold them into the person they are today.
